There’s no doubt that the Internet has opened many doors for creatives – designers, artists or photographers. However, the music industry takes the gold medal home when it comes to this field’s transformation through the interwebz.
Music covers. An ode to them. I’ve managed to waste (or gain, however you would like to put it) a good amount of life on discovering some truly creative covers: classics that have been transformed into entirely different arrangements, various songs merged together to give you a fantastic final piece of art and artists who take you by surprise, covering songs you would never imagine them doing.
A quick look at my iTunes “cover” search would give you a small idea of how seriously I take my discoveries, but for now let’s introduce you to the crème de la crème.
